    So, I updated my verizon phone to 4.3 yesterday, and I've come to the conclusion there are a couple things I don't like about it, but one that I despise. The change to the lock screen change is that thing, (icon changes to apps/widgets are ignorable for the most part). The rest of 4.3 I am indifferent to at this time, except the wifi which is a nice change.

    I use the pattern lock screen and I am quite annoyed that the size of the dots changed and that the phone now vibrates with every dot touched. Is there any default way to restore the dots to their proper size? (the size, for reference, was closer to the pattern confirmation for changing the lock method) If not, are there any apps that could provide that functionality back? Or at least turn off the vibrations?

    i dont use a lockscreen but there are loads of 3rd party alternatives.
    You should put a post in the Applications forum asking for recommendations and in the mean time. Have a look on Play (search "lock screen" or "locker" ) :thumbup:

    I was a little annoyed by the pattern lock spacing initially, but I guess I've gotten use to it.

    You should be able to disable the vibrations by going to Menu>System Settings>Sound and un-check Haptic feedback. (Odd place to put it, but oh well...)
